nothing drowns out everything
something keeps on happening
and always alone
builds itself a better home
and a better time
who knew..loving yourself
could make this whole agony
satisfy itself...until you waste away
and lead yourself to unwind..

As a survivor of every conceivable 12-step program, I fully appreciate this.  (She typed while sipping her beer..)  Please, sir,
can I have some more?

I've read this three times, each time it feels different. There's truth in your lines here...something "does" keep on happening and loving yourself "can" allay much of life's agony. Thank you for sharing this way of seeing.

Ah, yes, Jackal! That is the secret! Loving yourself! From that flows everything else!
